Hello and welcome to my profile.
My name is Andrea.
Thank you for taking your time to browse through my details.
I am here because I have a deep passion for supporting individuals from a diverse background, to work through their problems, with the aim to obtain positive change.
Whilst you are here, I guess you would like to know whether I am the right person to choose to support you.
I have a background in nursing. As a Registered nurse I have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience, over many years of caring for people with different health issues.
Since qualifying as a counsellor over the past 12 years, I have continued to develop my knowledge and skills, so that I will be able to support you with the most up to date
It is my aim to ensure that you feel relaxed and comfortable in my presence. For this reason, you can expect a non judgmental approach. You will always be the centre of our therapeutic relationship. This is said to be the key to a positive outcome.
Although I am trained to work with a range of emotional issues, I am very keen to work with you if you are experiencing anxiety, low self esteem, lack of self confidence and depression.
As an integrative counsellor, I am trained to work with different specialities, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). However, you can expect a flexible approach, since this will depend on our initial consultation session.
I look forward to speaking with you soon.
